## Consecutive Prime Sum Problem

TCS CodeVita Season 9 is one of the toughest coding competition in the world. where coders from all around the world fight for the title of world’s best coder. The sample questions which TCS CodeVita has provided this year, has Consecutive Prime Sum as one of its question, this is a good brain storming question, on this page we have provided a Java Code for Consecutive Prime Sum Problem

## Problem Description

Question – :  Some prime numbers can be expressed as a sum of other consecutive prime numbers.

• For example
• 5 = 2 + 3,
• 17 = 2 + 3 + 5 + 7,
• 41 = 2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13.
Your task is to find out how many prime numbers which satisfy this property are present in the range 3 to N subject to a constraint that summation should always start with number 2.

Write code to find out the number of prime numbers that satisfy the above-mentioned property in a given range.

Input Format: First line contains a number N

Output Format: Print the total number of all such prime numbers which are less than or equal to N.

Constraints: 2<N<=12,000,000,000

S.no Input Output Comment
1 20 2 (Below 20 there are two such members; 5 and 17) 5=2+3 17=2+3+65+7
2 15 1

## Java Code

```import java.util.Scanner;
class Main {

static int prime(int b) {
int j,cnt;
cnt=1;
for (j = 2; j <= b/2; j++) {
if(b%j==0)
cnt=0;
}
if(cnt==0)
return 1;
else
return 0;
}
public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
int i,j,n=0,cnt,c=0,sum=0,count=0,k=0;
Main t = new Main();
int[] a = new int[25];
System.out.println("Enter no");
n = sc.nextInt();
for (i = 2; i <=n ; i++) {
cnt=1;
for (j = 2; j <= n/2; j++) {
if(i%j==0)
cnt=0;
}
if(cnt==1) {
a[k]=i;
k++;
}

}
for (i = 0; i < k; i++) {
sum=sum+a[i];
c=t.prime(sum);
if(c==1)
count++;
}
System.out.println(count);
}

}```
```Output
43
4```

I dont find this solution correct!!
Here is my solution
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class ConsecutivePrimeSum {

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.println(“Enter N : “);
int n = sc.nextInt();
int sum =0; int k =1;
int count =0;
int arr[] = new int[25];
arr[0] = 2;
for(int i = 3 ; i<=n ;i++){
int flag = 0;
for(int j = 2 ; j <= i/2 ; j++) {
if(i%j == 0)
flag =1;
}
if(flag == 0) {
arr[k] =i;
k++;
}
}

for(int i =0 ; i<k;i++) {
sum = sum +arr[i];
int res =0;
if(sum !=2 && sum <= n) {
res = isPrime(sum);
if(res == 0) {
System.out.println("Sum of Consecutive prime no : " + sum);
count++;
}
}

}

a little condition check for n
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class ConsecutivePrimeSum {

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.println(“Enter N : “);
int n = sc.nextInt();
int sum =0; int k =1;
int count =0;
int arr[] = new int[25];
arr[0] = 2;
for(int i = 3 ; i<=n ;i++){
int flag = 0;
for(int j = 2 ; j <= i/2 ; j++) {
if(i%j == 0)
flag =1;
}
if(flag == 0) {
arr[k] =i;
k++;
}
}

for(int i =0 ; i<k;i++) {
sum = sum +arr[i];
int res =0;
if(sum !=2 && sum <= n) {
res = isPrime(sum);
if(res == 0) {
System.out.println("Sum of Consecutive prime no : " + sum);
count++;
}
}

}
